Where Mark Cavendish won his 31 Tour de France stages

Tour De Frace

Mark Cavendish now sits second in the Tour de France stage winners list with 31 victories. He started winning in 2008 at Chateauroux and quickly became the dominant sprinter at the race each year.

A successful come back in 2016 when riding for Dimension Data looked set to be his swansong as illness and injury kept him out of contention and then out of the race after that. Then an incredible comeback in 2021 saw him add his 31st stage victory after a period when he thought he would never even ride the race again. 

We decided to plot all of his 31 wins on a map. Click on each one and for a brief description and link to our original report.
